This candlestick model is comparable to works by several ornamentalists during King Louis XV's reign including the Slodtz brothers and Juste-Aurèle Meissonnier.

Architect-decorator and son of sculptor Sébastien Slodtz (1655-1726), Sébastien-Antoine Slodtz (1695-1754) worked on many occasions with his brothers, René-Michel Slodtz (1705-1764), called Michelangelo, and Paul-Ambroise (1702-1758), both sculptors, for King Louis XV's Menus-Plaisirs (ceremony preparations). They created numerous ephemeral sets for royal and princely events, and produced many ornamental models. Although their collaboration makes it difficult to attribute precisely which one to them, our pair of candlesticks is nevertheless close to a drawing by Sébastien-Antoine Slodtz, now in the prints department of the National Library of France (ill. by A. de Champeaux).

This type of candlestick with sinuous lines, adorned with moth and vegetable motifs, were quite successful, and Juste-Aurèle Meissonnier (1695-1750), a prolific Rococo style decorator, also produced examples with a bulbous stem comprising a foliaged cluster.
